re: So now in New Mexico, a gas station owner can be sued if he sells gas to a drunk....
If I’m the gas station lawyer, I would be questioning whether he could have continued to drink at his friends house after the gas station. Or did he have some road pops in the back seat.

The only reason this came up is because the guy went inside and was so drunk the clerk wouldn’t sell him anything at first. The ruling only said the gas station could be found liable not that they were.



That's the only way I could think it would work.

The clerk would have to be shown to have seen/reasonably known that the driver/gas getter was drunk via going inside, behavior around the pump/store, etc.

How do you know he's even driving? Could want gas to put in his car so his buddy could drive. This decision is awful.
